A BEAUTIFUL PERIODICAL DEVOTED TO THE MUSIC WE LOVE, MADE BY PEOPLE WHO CARE

Dingo’s International Jazz Day celebrations return this year as Jazz in the North with another jam-packed day of Australian jazz artists.

International Jazz Day – chaired and led by UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock – is declared to be “the world’s largest celebration of jazz as a force for peace, intercultural dialogue and international cooperation.”
As noted by Hancock during 2023’s showcase event, “Respect for human dignity is firmly integrated into the DNA of jazz. International Jazz Day honors this important value by embracing the peace and freedom that jazz so eloquently proclaims. And that is the spirit of jazz – finding delight in diversity and creating harmony out of our differences.”

It is with this spirit that Dingo’s Jazz in the North celebrates the richness and diversity across different aspects of the Australian jazz community.

Jazz in the North will celebrate the richness and diversity across different aspects of the Australian jazz community. Building on this annual event, Welcome to Thornbury will come alive with Melbourne’s finest emerging and established jazz artists in a relaxed family friendly setting. 

Plus we’ll have CD’s, print music, books and other merch. Grab a meal, have a drink and enjoy Australian jazz artists.
